vtomole comments on “Quantum Computing Explained”


We are currently living in an exciting time for quantum computing. Most leading companies like Google and IBM have 20 qubit devices. IBM has a 50 qubit prototype [0].

Google has plans to show quantum supremacy in the next couple of months: where a quantum computer will perform a task that cannot be simulated on a classical computer [2].These near-term (5-10 year) quantum computers will likely be used for simulating quantum chemistry and solving optimization problems.
